UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Cloudy amber goodness with puffy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Big floral and fruit aromas - orange, grapefruit, mango, apricot - with a pine/resin bite over soft, earthy caramel malt backing. Lightly sweet, lasting but not overpowering hop bitterness. Medium-bodied and juicy smooth. Need to try again to be sure, but that first pint puts it among my favourite IPAs. pinkie (470) - New York, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours an orange color, cloudy and with a dark melon like hue from deep within it. Fat creamy head of khaki foam that left plenty of clinging lace. Nose is tropical fruit and citrus. Light fresh orange on passion fruit. No pine in the nose until it warmed a bit then it was earthy pine needles. A beautiful scent of brown sugar for malt. Taste is outrageously good. The fruits are juicy and a bit tart too so they fully engage the palate. The earthy pine is light and the the malt becomes a soft light caramel. The body approaches medium but stays light. Thereís a bit of sticky resin at the back to coat the throat and leaves a bitter that starts soft and then increases in intensity after the swallow. Lingering after tatse of caramel, sweet fruit and pine needles. Brilliant beer. Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2012
I loved this beer. This had a sensual caramel that stayed generally light but was like a ribbon underneath this beer. The fruit was bountiful and the bitter started soft and then became a bit stronger as it lingered.
Excellent IPA. The nose comes in layers of stone and citrus fruit. Rich, yet refreshing and fruity palate of apricot and orange peel. Balanced hop finish. Great beer. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Appearance: Pours an amber orange with an offwhite bubbly film.anggrec (65) - Delaware, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Aroma: Huge tropical nose: pineapple mango tangerine. Brown sugar. Grapefruit oils.
Taste: Grapefruity hops. Pine. Caramel malt. Finishes with lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Juicy with moderate carbonation.
Overall: this is my kinda IPA. Delicious and smells great too.
From bottle to tulip. Dark copper color not a lot of aroma. So smooth and balanced with a very bitter hoppiness throughout. I like is one a lot.

22 oz. bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a pale caramel color with a 1-inch head. Forward citrus aromas. A rich, full-bodied mouthfeel with unmistakable grapefruit flavors and a bitter finishóbut not overwhelmingly so. This is big flavor for only 6.3% ABV. Iím impressed. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Surprisingly malt-forward IPA! Surprising, just because this is a PNW brew. But, quite good. The malts lead in, giving way to pine-oriented hops (with a touch of resin), and following through with sufficient bitterness. Very well done. PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 15, 2013
22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to mostly clear orange color. The aroma has citrus / floral notes to it. The taste has a light body with a nice bitter finish. Overall a good IPA. thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Murky orange pour. Thin, off white head with very little carbonation. Hoppy taste on the front and back in. Good example of the style. AAEA (266) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
22FL OZ ($4.99 Bottle) this was a very very good IPA. I have only had a few IPAs i can say are better. This is the most well rounded Iíve had in recent history. Find it, drink it, love it, you wonít regret it.
